The Origins of Tiong Hoe…


Tiong Hoe Gim Kee Trading Co was founded out of genuine love and passion for coffee by Mr. Tan Tiong Hoe in the 1960s, and is now managed by the second generation. Mr. Tan Tiong Hoe has devoted his whole life and career to coffee since he was 16 years old and till today, is still learning new techniques and knowledge! Although the journey came with bumps along the road, Mr. Tan remained true to roast and serve 100% pure coffee to the highest standards.

Fast forward to 2014, Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee was set up to serve our own freshly roasted coffee beans and hope to set the standard of “specialty coffee” in Singapore. We take the art of making coffee very seriously, and aim to carry on the heritage and legacy that Mr. Tan established for us.
